Here's a screenshot of disk management. I've deleted the Windows XP volume that kept coming up as a logical drive and you can see that it's just unallocated space. If I can install an OS on a logical drive then I guess that isn't my problem. What's happening is I'm trying to boot XP from my usb DVD-R and after it loads and before it gives me the setup screen I get this error "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installled hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2542,0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)" I'm running windows 7 starter on this netbook.
